I haven't opened the bag, assuming that it is a better artwork if I never actually touch it. And none of the pieces appear to have been lost, even the two cents, escaped from their tissue paper holsters, are still rattling within the bag with the wooden framing of the card.
Interestingly, today I mailed my daughter Erin (who's living in Dublin) a bunch of earring backs and posts, so she can make earrings out of Euro cents. She has enough supplies for 24 earrings!
